JCSU Announces COVID-19 Protocols for All Sports Venues on Campus

Charlotte, N.C. / September 23, 2021 – The JCSU Department of Athletics has updated safety guidelines for sport competitions held on campus. Starting Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021, spectators attending all JCSU indoor and outdoor sport competitions will be required to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 3 days before the game, match or meet. Spectators should also bring a valid photo ID along with the proof of vaccination or negative test result. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 is asked not to come to campus so you don’t put others at risk. 

Fans are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask while sitting in the stands for football games at Irwin Belk Complex, even though it is outdoors. Face masks are also strongly encouraged when visiting the concession area and when inside elevators and restrooms. Spectators should also remain six feet from others not in your immediate household, practice hand-washing and use the hand sanitizing stations located throughout the stadium. 

Face masks are required in Brayboy Gymnasium. Social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing hands are strongly encouraged inside the gym.

Johnson C. Smith University joined many colleges and universities across the nation in mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for all faculty, staff and students to help keep our campus community safe. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we protect our campus and do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. 

The vaccine saves lives and slows the spread of COVID-19 and its variants. We encourage all persons ages 12 and up to get the shot.
